Solar and energy storage supplier JinkoSolar has announced a partnership with English Premier League football club Manchester City.

The new partnership will “allow JinkoSolar to accelerate its market presence to a global audience and to support the club’s effort to become one of the largest producers of renewable energy in world football,” a JinkoSolar statement said.

As of the first quarter of 2024, JinkoSolar has delivered a total of more than 230 GW of module shipments globally, with one out of every eight solar panels installed worldwide produced by JinkoSolar.

Under the partnership agreement, JinkoSolar will “connect and engage with Man City fans globally to jointly promote the use of solar energy through their innovative and award-winning solar products and further educate fans on how they can play a part towards a sustainable future,” the statement added.

It continued: “Jinko will also support the club’s plans to make its training facility, City Football Academy, one of the largest producers of renewable energy in world football. Announced earlier this year, the project forms a key part of Manchester City’s goal of becoming carbon net zero by 2030.”

Last week, JinkoSolar announced that its subsidiary JinkoSolar Denmark had supplied “high voltage residential storage solutions” to SolarToday for use in the DACH and Benelux regions starting from June 2024.

Also last week, Jinko Solar announced the deployment of its “advanced energy storage solution (ESS) at the UAE’s Fujairah City Centre. The project, named ‘Green Cooling’, is a collaboration with Majed AL Futtaim Group and developer Yellow Door, marks a “significant step towards sustainable energy use in commercial properties,” Jinko Solar said. JinkoSolar’s storage system, with a 540 kWh capacity, has been integrated with a 700 kWp solar panel system, enabling the shopping mall to operate a 24/7 off-grid green air conditioning system.
